Can a BDP have SPD traits ?

Postby Faeh » Tue Sep 04, 2018 11:16 pm

I have a question.
I have Borderline Personality Disorder. My last therapists in a complex trauma clinic said that I had several personality type traits, amongst them shizoid. I read that those cannot coincide. Can traits coincide though ?
I ask this because I usually need to be alone. But I breakdown when I dont see people for too long. But when I see people, I cant look them in the eyes. I immidetialy dissociate more than usual and there is just this intense fear. I dont even know what I m afraid about. Just people. When I see people its already too much. I dont really feel much usually. Just some form of dissolution of my own self or fear or a bit of sadness. But then I have flashes of strong emotions. I cant trust anyone. I basically have one friend and two friends I know for a long time. But i cant stand being around anyone and I am not really sure if I even care for them. If i saw them I need to not see them for a while. To get a feeling the connection is broken off. Its just too much. It doesnt matter who I talk to, it always feels like they violate my mind somehow and its so intense. I usually spend my time with fantasy stories or fantasy rpgs. I cant even play online games because of people ^^. Its just too much. Even if conversations go well. I have learned over my life to mimick expressions and my body just behaves normally even though it is not at all who i am. Well Okay sorry for the longer text.
I am in different therapies for 5 years now. complex trauma therapy did help a bit.

I m really sorry for the long text. Greetings from Germany

Yes, there is nothing that excludes one from the other and anyone could have traits of many personality disorders but not be diagnosed with any. I have been told I have borderline traits but I have never been diagnosed with BPD.
